1. How much louder is it compared to 9mm carbine or so?
2. Since I'm not getting a can. What weight bullets are preferred for accuracy and economy? I will be reloading some. (a hobby I dont get much time for lately). Thanks, and thanks for a great forum.
For what you are looking for I would recommend Hornady 110 and 130 grain loads. these would be great for non suppressed target shooting and/or hunting. I cannot compare to a 9mm carbine, but I can say the 300 is quieter than my .223 AR platform. I personally think the 300 is a round you will enjoy. I load all of my own rounds for mine. I have seen a few bolt guns in the 300 AAC,s o you should not have any trouble getting your hands on one. Every round has its naysayers, so I say do your research and if it is a round you want to get into shooting then jump right in. I have no regrets!
